Brooks Cambium Saddle

Favorited by Rama Chorpash 
Director of Product Design at Parsons 

Bike seats don’t have to feel like fence posts.

The $160 Cambium C17 saddle by Brooks is designed to act like a taut sling, absorbing the dips and bumps of the road better than the classic rigid saddle. The Cambium is made of vulcanized natural rubber and waterproofed organic cotton canvas. 

Its “tactility and innovative material quality allows it to outperform their heritage leather seats, given weather and wear,” says Chorpash.
